LABOR DAY WEEKENDER

I had a highly productive, fun filled weekend celebrating labour day, in Chicago

King britt and I were finally able to showcase one of our new joints ‘Take Me Away‘, featured on the forthcoming album, at the Africa HIFI 4th year anniversary party, courtesy of Ron Trent and Sonia H

I was also able to showcase quite a few of my new song’s live, with the original musicians I cut them with. A video of the show would be posted on my website shortly.

Music aside, the highlight of my trip proved to be a visit to the Art institute of Chicago, where I got a chance to see the work of my ancestral forbearer’s – Benin—Kings and Rituals: Court Arts from Nigeria

A few of the pieces on display were looted treasures from the much talked about British punitive expedition carried out in 1897.  More on this later…….
